Default What's your favourite "regional" food?

By regional I mean something you're unlikely to be able to order outside of a certain area, or that if you do order is probably different from what you expect.

For example, Alberta-style ginger beef. If you order ginger beef in a Chinese Restaurant anywhere in Alberta, what you're going to be eating is crunchy strips of marinated beef (often deep fried twice to make it extra crunchy) topped with a dark, sticky, sweet and spicy sauce, sometimes with julienned carrots and onions thrown in for good measure. That's just what ginger beef is here. In other parts of Canada it's hit or miss when it comes to ginger beef: some places serve it "Alberta style", some places don't.

So what's your favourite?

I was born and raised in New Jersey but migrated down to SW Florida ten years ago.

I would say that my favorite regional food for this area is boiled peanuts. I had never heard of them or had them until we moved here.

They are quite delicious. You get a pick cup of them, with some of the hot liquid they have been cooked in which keeps them quite warm. You just pick them out of the shell. They are soft and taste like the spices they have been cooked with. And since peanuts are actually a bean, and not a nut, they lend well to this cooking method.

Everybody makes baked beans, but Boston baked beans are special. I like Indian pudding, too, which doesn't seem to feature on the menu anywhere else.

In Texas, where I was raised in the 70s, All burgers (Whataburger, Sonic, Burger King, etc) were mustard only by default. The Drive-In menu at BK would even specify MUSTARD WHOPPER. If you didn't want mustard, and wanted the "Outside of Texas" standard of Mayo and Ketchup, you had to ask for it. I didn't know this until I left Texas, when I would order a #1, and my mustard was missing.
Still, to this day, I like to pull into a sonic and get a sonicburger with mustard, onion and pickle. Good Times.

Here in New England, I like what we call Lobster Rolls. The right way is a split on top hot dog roll, with a quarter pound of warm lobster meat and drenched in melted butter. Pure bliss.

I've also mentioned before some other CT favorites: Steamed Cheeseburgers, where it is more melted cheese than meat; Rhode Island Clam Chowder - broth based, no cream; White Clam Pizza; White Birch Beer; Chow Mein Sandwiches; Coffee milk...

I grew up in a big family, so we always ordered the largest pizzas available... in this area, that would be the rectangular "party tray" pizza. I didn't realize this was a regional thing until I started traveling a bit more! Apparently most other places just serve XL round pizzas.

Yes yes yes to the Pork Roll. Especially if it is served on a hard roll. Which is also a NJ delicacy apparently. Haven't found one elsewhere.

Very fun thread!

I'm also from New England:

Clam cakes. Yummmmmmmm.

It's basically a fried ball of dough (like a very small fritter) with clams in it. So delicious. (So good I even served them at my wedding )

OH and stuffies, too. It's stuffing with delicious spices and chopped clams served in a big quahog shell. Most delicious with lots of melted butter and the green tabasco sauce over the top. Man, I need to go get some of this deliciousness soon!

In Utah - Its Fry Sauce.

Yeah. Mix some mayo and ketchup together. Every burger joint, cafe, and diner in the state has their own concoction of the stuff. Dixie Grill, in Brigham City, puts tabasco in theirs to add kick. Other places add stuff like pickle juice to try and set theirs apart. Or drop ketchup, use hickory bbq instead.

Sure, there is ketchup available (no cheese curds and gravy.. sorry). That's how my co-workers know I'm not from around here. I personally prefer to have ketchup with my fries/onion rings.

Asked many many times, if they had fry sauce, McDonalds finally relented, and now offer fry sauce in their local restaurants, in packs similar to the Hot Mustard used for nuggets. In-n-Out claimed to the press that they won't fall for that kind of pressure, although its just as easy to order "special sauce" on the side.

I grew up in East Tennessee. So it would be:

- Salt cured country ham
- Pork sausage
- Pinto beans served over corn bread with onions
- Apple dumplings
- Mush (a gruel made by boiling corn meal in water - NOT like grits)
- Southern fried chicken (a pullet, caught out of the yard on Sunday morning about an hour before dinner)
- A little shine to wash it down with

This ain't haute cuisine, but it'll do.

I'm from Texas so green sauce (salsa verde) made from avocados and tomatillos not tomatoes...its commonly served as a dip along side of tomato based salsa at Tex-Mex places in the Houston/Austin area. Ohhh and you can't forget Chicken Fried Steaks with mashed potatoes and gravy! The food of Gods!!!

This is kind of sad, but I've lived in Maryland for over ten years and still haven't found a "regional" food that really speaks to me. I'm not a big crab fan, so that leaves me out of luck there. I grew up in Rhode Island and lived in Massachusetts for several years, too, and I still consider that general area home. So, like Bridget said, clamcakes! I have never seen them anywhere but Rhode Island. And white/milk-based clam chowder, of course (the best is from Legal Seafood). And every summer I miss clambakes and Del's lemonade and Awful-Awfuls from Newport Creamery. And pizza! I totally took good pizza for granted until I moved away. My town where I grew up had a Greek pizzeria and an Italian one, both of which were amazing. I seriously have not had GREAT pizza from a pizzeria since moving away from New England (that's not to say it doesn't exist, just that I haven't encountered it!).

I'm headed up north for a trip in October and I'm going to eat a lot of clamcakes. And Sweenor's chocolates!

I've been doing this for half my life! However, I do it like this: 2 parts mayo, 2 parts mustard, 1 part ketchup, since I like a little more kick to it.

I spent a wee bit of my life in far east Texas, where its the fringe of cajun bayou country. I was able to enjoy <name of seafood> etoufee, frog legs, <name of cooking method> catfish, red beans and rice, gumbo.. and yet still have some Texas styles like chili, bbq brisket.. and the usual southern influence of everything with gravy.

ETA: And grits.. can't forget grits.

I have to add one! I just had some mint chocolate chip ice cream, and it reminded me of Newport Creamery's peppermint stick flavor ice cream. Bright pink peppermint flavor base, with bits of pink/green/white peppermint stick candy. The candy bits melt into the ice cream as it warms, and leave beautiful little stripes of lime green and hot pink in the lighter pink ice cream. Delicious and refreshing, especially in the summer, and pretty to look at, too.

I'm pretty sure I've mentioned this in every thread like this ever, but my absolute favorite regional food is the fried pork tenderloin sandwich from my home state of Indiana. I've heard that you can find them in Iowa sometimes, too, but I still think of this as a Hoosier food. We even had them for school lunches. Basically it's pork loin pounded thin, breaded and fried. It's served with various toppings, but the most common is shredded cabbage and slaw sauce (not previously mixed so the cabbage stays crisp). So yum.

Couldn't find a picture of one with cabbage, but this picture makes me drool (hold the tomato, pls).
